(AP Photo, File)ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkish jets hit Kurdish rebel targets in northern Iraq overnight and the government said strikes would continue until the rebels lay down their arms, despite calls Wednesday by the pro-Kurdish opposition for an immediate end to the violence and the resumption of peace efforts.

"I am very disappointed by the NFL's decision to uphold the 4 game suspension against me," Brady posted on his Facebook page. One of the most high-profile athletes in American sport, Brady was found by Goodell to have been at least "generally aware" of a plot by Patriots staff to improperly reduce the air pressure of balls used by Brady during the American Conference final against Indianapolis earlier this year.
